Canada’s Tactical Imports Corp. is happy to announce the availability of Hungary’s Gepard GM6 Lynx anti-materiel and sniper rifle now in the U.S. It is a very capable, very accurate bullpup chambered for .50 BMG.
The GM6 is a semi-automatic version of the Gepard family of hard-hitting rifles. It’s the most up-to-date model with stronger and lighter parts than previous versions. Currently, the gun is in service by military and police forces in a smattering of countries including, of course, Hungary.
It’s compact in its bullpup configuration, measuring in at 44 inches long with the standard barrel installed. The GM6 can be set up with 28-inch or 36-inch barrels for maximum range. It breaks down for ease of transportation, too.
With its long-recoil action and big, beefy muzzle brake, recoil should be relatively light. It weighs 25 pounds unloaded without a scope.
Every rifle has a sub-MOA accuracy guarantee with match-grade ammo. The Lynx comes with one Lothar-Walther barrel assembly and two 5-round magazines. Tactical Imports sells additional barrels and mags separately.
These are not inexpensive guns with a sticker price of $11,999 USD (American dollars). That gets you pair of 34mm 50 BMG scope rings, spare action spring, bipod, cleaning kit, hard case and manual. Extra mags and barrel assemblies will set you back $375 and $1,650, respectively.
Prices in Canada are a little higher at $14,999 CAD but that reflects the exchange rate. That and semi-automatic .50-caliber rifles are a lot harder to come by up north.
All things considered, it is priced in-line with other self-loading .50s — especially considering how rare and cool these rifles are.
Buyers will also need a measure of patience as each rifle is imported as a special order. It can take up to 6 months for delivery and Tactical Imports requires a 35 percent down payment.
Whether you’re into long-range hunting, target shooting or just want to collect exotic firearms, the Gepard GP6 should be on your radar.
